I accepted a job in Australia in early November and will be starting work with the new company early January. I just found out that I'm pregnant. I wasn't pregnant when I accepted the job but things happen.
Should I tell the new company before I even relocate that I'm pregnant?
I think that i shouldn't since it's early in the pregnancy like only 4 weeks and i don't want my new company to be the first to know when my extended family doesn't even know.
- Procore Lol2018No they don’t need to know. Also, there is a risk of miscarriage (Of course I hope this doesn’t happen 😀)so no need to rock the boat until you know for sure.
- Amazon salsa🕺No. Never. Let them assume you are getting fat. And take a week off to deliver the baby.
- What would be even the point of telling? Legally they can’t recall the offer. In terms of planning if you tell them at 5 months they would still have 3 more months to prepare for tour leave, much more than the 2 week notice they normally get when people leave the company.
- In which way US is more progressive? I believe anti discrimination laws are similar and maternity leave in Australia is more generous: https://raisingchildren.net.au/pregnancy/preparing-for-a-baby/work/pregnancy-work-rights4d0
